The Morning Report — 3/20/23

relaxjoeybragg.jpg

Good morning kids. Were it not so utterly tragic, I'd be laughing my ass off instead of retching my guts up. For just over two years, we've endured the abject disaster of an economy induced into near total free-fall, the nightmare of rushing headlong to touch of World War 3, the confirmation that the origins of and response to General Tso's Sicken (Chinese COVID) were a total disaster, a national crime wave made worse by a non-existent border, rank incompetence in every department and that the titanic big lie that J-6 was a Trump-led violent insurrection that attempted to overthrow the government and seize power has been exploded with the release of 44,000 hours of video that seem to indicate DOJ agents provocateur were the source of all the violence that day.

So, the cherry on the parfait, the "waffer-theeen" mint that an engorged Mr. Creosote is about to swallow is that House investigations are confirming the un-spinnable fact that Joe "Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants" Biden (with help from his family) is quite probably the most corrupt politician to ever hold office in American history, having obtained the bulk of his lucre by selling his office and selling out America to the world's worst actors, including our worst enemies.

That last item, washed down with two jeroboams of transexualism, woke-ism, DEI-ism and another "ism" beginning with a "j" – journalism – surely is the straw that breaks the camel's back. Then, seemingly out of nowhere comes subpar-thinking affirmative action hire and Soros stooge Alvin Bragg to snatch the mint and switch it with a Tums. Or in this case, to my non-legal eagle eyes is for all intents and purposes, the close moral equivalent to a bill of attainder against the junta's greatest nemesis.

This is banana republic shit that even Haitians are raising an eyebrow at.

If Democrats really wanted Donald Trump to fade away, as they claim, then they would stop persecuting him. 

Maybe they are so blinded by hatred that they can’t see that every time they use the heavy hand of the law against the former president, they just cement his status as MAGA martyr. 

Or maybe they are so terrified of running against Ron DeSantis in 2024, that they actually want to martyr Trump to ensure he wins the Republican presidential primary ready for a repeat contest with Joe Biden. 

In that scenario, Democratic prosecutors in New York and Georgia, and a partisan DOJ, play the role of picadors in a bullfight who soften up the bull with a thousand cuts before the decrepit old matador staggers out to finish him off. . .

. . . But, more significantly, the story took the spotlight off the bombshell bank records released the previous day by the House oversight committee, showing $1,065,000 had been funneled from a Chinese energy company, through Biden intimate Rob Walker, to four immediate family members of Joe Biden: his son Hunter, brother James, and Hallie Biden, the widow of his late son Beau, who also is Hunter’s former lover. . .

. . . So for the Democrats’ spin machine, it was time for a Trump scandal, always their tactic in a “break glass in case of emergency” moment like this, guaranteed to distract media attention, and keep voters in the dark about the real scandal swirling around Biden. 

Enter Bragg, the Soros-funded, soft-on-crime DA who has been talking about Trump being indicted on something or other since at least 2019, and who made “Get Trump” a part of his election campaign. 

His case is a joke. The allegation is that Trump falsified business records by concealing a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels which was made by his estranged former lawyer Michael Cohen in 2016. 

Everything rests on the word of Cohen, a convicted perjurer, who testified before Bragg’s grand jury for three hours last Monday, and then again on Wednesday. Before that he had been in for interviews with the DA’s office at least 19 times. 

But on Monday the grand jury will hear testimony from Bob Costello, a former legal adviser to Cohen before they fell out, who has acted for Trump’s some time lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and is a former supervisor with the Southern District of New York. 

Costello will cite evidence contained in the 2020 book “The Fixers: The Bottom-Feeders, Crooked Lawyers, Gossipmongers, and Porn Stars Who Created the 45th President” that Cohen keeps changing his story about the Stormy Daniels payments and can’t be trusted. 

Costello knows because he was an on-record source for the book and Cohen granted him a waiver of their attorney-client privilege to reveal what he had told him about his troubles when the feds first came knocking — and it’s nothing like what he’s saying now. 

When prosecutors were told about the book Friday, they knew nothing about it, says a source, which doesn’t say much for their due diligence. 

Oops. Building off of Miranda Devine above, Robert Spencer notes:

But now it turns out that the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which has Trump in its sights, just may be stepping back from the brink: Business Insider reported Saturday night that Trump’s indictment is “on hold” until one more witness testifies Monday afternoon.

That’s about all that has come to light, as the relevant authorities are being quite closemouthed about this whole thing. Insider says that “a source with knowledge of the investigation” told them on Saturday night “there is one more witness.” The indictment is apparently not a certainty until this witness testifies.

But who is this witness? The Insider’s source wouldn’t say, and so all that we’re told is that “a separate source, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, told Insider that the witness is not Allen Weisselberg, Trump’s former CFO, who is serving a five-month sentence for admittedly masterminding a payroll tax-dodge scheme at the Trump Organization.”

Meanwhile, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, whose betrayal of his former client started this whole business about Trump having paid hush money to a porn star (which is what he might be arrested for, not any of the literally dozens of other crimes that Democrats have claimed he has committed over the last few years, up to and including trying to overthrow the government of the United States), “has told reporters he expected to be the grand jury’s final witness when he testified last Monday and Wednesday.” So whoever is slated to appear on Monday is a surprise witness. . .

. . . The principal charge is expected to be a felony, “falsifying business records in the first degree,” which would be based on the claim that Trump was involved in falsifying records to conceal the payment to the porn “actress.” Meanwhile, Trump continues to deny that he had any liaison with the porn star at all, and certainly there are precedents for wealthy individuals and groups paying out sums to claimants even though they know the claims are false, just to get them to go away. . .

. . . In the U.S., the Democrats enjoyed tremendous gains in both houses of Congress and won the presidency on the strength of Watergate, and they’ve never forgotten that lesson; in fact, tarring their opponents as criminals on bogus charges has become a cornerstone of their political strategy. And that is a prelude to treating them like actual criminals, complete with arrests, handcuffs, and perp walks. Whether or not it comes Tuesday, it’s coming.

While Spencer's observation is certainly true, the state of the nation today is markedly different from the Watergate era. Divided as we were even back then, there was still a level of trust in the institutions and traditions of the American governmental and legal system, as well as in the media, and even with diametrically opposed views on the issues of the day, still at least a modicum of respect for those with whom you disagree and the commonality of nation and heritage. Today, that has all but vanished on every front. In fact, an overwhelming percentage of the American people believe that we have a two-tiered justice system that favors those in power and the Left in general.

Whatever the calculus of the junta in going after Trump, they will only succeed in making him into a martyr. I have not been sanguine about a Trump candidacy in 2024. My biggest negatives are his age, his puerile name-calling against DeSantis, and most distressing, his making the theft of the 2020 election the central pillar of his campaign. He's had some flashes of brilliance with his trade package and his intent to go to war against woke-ism in all its forms. But so far, his negatives outweigh the positives. YMMV, but I think a lot of people are feeling this way about him.

But that said, I have always thought of him as the leader of a movement that goes way beyond mere electoral politics. In fact, it's kind of strange to read Miranda Devine's analysis insofar as the Democrat calculus of preferring to face Trump rather than DeSantis for fear of him wiping the floor with Biden or whoever, since they regard Trump to be a pushover. Considering they have all but institutionalized election fraud in the key swing districts and states they stole in 2020, what does it matter who is running?

For me, this has less if anything to do with who the candidate is in 2024 than mere distraction and above all else, retribution against Donald Trump. That's what all this is about.

Love him, hate him or whatever, Donald Trump intentionally or not started a movement that exposed the hypocrisy and corruption that has now completely subsumed our government and much of our society. Whatever they do to him or try to do to him, what he started will not be stopped. There is no going back now to the way things were. A lot of it was a lie, and there are powerful forces and more alarmingly a great deal of the citizenry duped into or otherwise consciously supporting the transformation of America into a socialist disaster to be served up to the Davos-Brussels-Beijing Axis, or perhaps a resurgent Islamic global caliphate.

So, go ahead and slap the cuffs on Trump. It worked so well for the British when they did it to Gandhi, didn't it?

The reason why Gandhi's campaign of non-violent resistance worked at all against the British is because the British had an inherent sense of honor and integrity for the most part. Gandhi would have been gunned down in an instant if he'd tried to resist Stalin or Mao.

The Left has neither honor nor integrity. They will gladly perp-walk Trump into a holding cell and then guarantee he gets the Epstein treatment.

43 I understand that a lot of people are turned off by Trump's personal style. It's not my favorite trait of his either.

But I think a good deal of that comes from the fact that as conservatives we traditionally aren't the loud, in your face revolutionary types that make up the left.

Those days are over. We are in a war for the soul of the country, the world really, against a ruthless and diabolical enemy who wants to destroy all of our freedoms and everything about this country we love. We need a take no prisoners fighter who is relentless and not as concerned about playing nice. That is Trump. He is our weapon and he's accomplished a hell of a lot more in his short time in politics to save this country than the top 10 other leaders on our side combined.

On balance, there is nobody else even close to him.

60 Morning,

I'm glad Trump is still talking about the the theft of the last election. It has to be addressed. Everyone seems to not want to talk about it and put it in the past. I think that is a big mistake. As far as DeSantis goes. he along with all of the rest should be standing behind Trump and treating him as an incumbent, because he is. He did win and the fact that all of these people are making moves to throw their hats in tells me they either don't care about the steal, or they don't believe it. I like DeSantis, but he should be smart and wait 4 more years and throw his support to Trump this time. Trump IMO is the only one who can win, and that's only if by some miracle we can stop the fraud, which is doubtful. Just my two cents

72 I'd say this to Republicans that have grown Trump-weary, you may no longer wish to have him as your president, but you owe him your allegiance in this matter, regardless.

You cannot be nonplussed in this, whether your preference be Jeb Bush, Ron DeSantis or Alfred E. Newman.

Imprisoning political rivals is shitting on the very ideology of the country as founded. I'd sooner return to servitude under the British crown as watch my own government enter into an era of taking political prisoners.

All the lives that died for freedom, just governance, independence from tyranny, and goodness aren't merely screaming from the grave, they are putting on their uniforms and demanding we follow them into battle.

Trump has been releasing statements on Truth and at his rallies for some time now and they are all about policy and not the election theft.

I agree with spypeach that nothing else really matters if we can't overcome the cheating so that needs to remain front and center in everyone's mind as well.

86 Trump most definitely should not make the election theft the central piece of his campaign, but it most certainly should not be forgotten. It was, and is, a grotesque violation of the very foundation of this supposed free country. It can't be moved on from! IMO, it should be woven in with the rest of his platform. It should be handled carefully, and forcefully, but as a means to show just how corrupt America has become. Not as a personal vendetta on his part.

Significant enough that a Republican ballot harvesting effort must be integrated into every "election" moving forward, presuming there will be "elections." Once the so-called playing field is leveled with the Democrats they'll likely move on to some other form of fraud. It's the Republicans job to counter that.

They've failed miserably so far.

And despite all that I can't think of anyone who came close accomplishing what he did in 4 years, 3 really, in 8 years.

What happened in 2020 - or rather, what the G.O.P. allowed to happen - was then and is now a GIGANTIC CRIME AND CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY that both robbed President Trump of his reelection and the USA of our future!
The rampant crime, overrun joke of a border, end of our energy independence, dangerous weakening of our military and tanking of what was the strongest economy in half a century is ALL directly tied to what happened on that Tuesday night in November 2020.
And the Republicans will continue to repeatedly assure us "we will get to the bottom of 2020" and then not do ONE DAMN THING about it. They helped steal it.
So YES, 2020 has EVERYTHING to do with where we are now. Pretending it doesn't is to excuse one of the greatest crimes in American history!

125 This order was the result of a lawsuit against the Smithsonian for its actions that day. Before the story became news, it appears almost all Washington museums and monuments were under orders from someone in the executive branch of the Biden administration to harass and eject pro-life demonstrators. Pro-life visitors to the National Archives and the Washington Monument were also harassed that day.

After the story hit the press, these institutions immediately expressed regret. Since no one believed them, the pro-life demonstrators went to court, enlisting the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) as their law firm. Not only has the Smithsonian lost in court, so has the National Archives.


What a great result, and, shockingly, it came from a DC Circuit court. I thank the ACLJ (whom I have never heard of before) for manning up and going after the Junta so successfully.

Both sides of the Establishment are on board with preserving this lie at all costs, because to question it is to question the legitimacy of the Establishment in both parties, and they don't want people to realize that we are living under the occupation of an illegitimate, hostile regime.

127 Maybe they are so blinded by hatred that they can’t see that every time they use the heavy hand of the law against the former president, they just cement his status as MAGA martyr.
Or maybe they are so terrified of running against Ron DeSantis in 2024, that they actually want to martyr Trump to ensure he wins the Republican presidential primary ready for a repeat contest with Joe Biden.

++++
Swing and a miss. They don't fear Trump. They demonstrated quite well that they can largely contain him. I have nor reason to suspect that the thought process is any different for DeSantis.

This is vengeance. It's vengeance against Trump for having the audacity to think that a non-Deep-State-aligned outsider has any place in Washington and it's both vengeance against and a warning to the people who supported him. To the the people, the message is, "if you try this again, we'll hamstring the guy and gleefully run up the score until you damn rubes understand your place. You have no chance. We hate you and will destroy your symbols and hopes. If you try direct action, you'll end up in a gulag as a political prisoner like the Jan 6 crew."

Tom Luongo and Alex Krainer have some interesting theories that the American banks the hold stakes in the Federal Reserve are presently at war with the European central bankers, and that Jay Powell's interest rate hikes are the shiv to the gut of Europe.

The calculus they suggest is that the Davos crowd have been pushing for One World global currency, which we spell the end of Federal Reserve power and American finance and transfer to a European led global contingency where America would have only a few seats at the table, but not the gavel.

So the aggressive Fed rate hikes have instead been wielded to disembowel European-inspired global communism through the mechanism of decimating off-shore dollar liquidity.

Strange that banker greed and power struggles against globalism could wind up being our savior, but I guess wars make for strange bedfellows.

131 The most salient reason to not support Trump is that he is not gaining new supporters, rather he is losing old ones. And he needs them all.

Add to that.. there is about about half of the electorate who would never vote for Trump under any circumstance.

Add to that... Everyone who associates with Trump is marked for career death forever so he will be stuck with Scaramucci style cabinet members.

If anyone has the political and governmental chops to dismantle the administrative state, reel in the FBI and IC overreach, and hold Congress accountable, I think that is DeSantis, not Trump.

Plus, if Trump is re-elected, the "witch hunt" card has been played and didn't stop any of them. They can persecute and prosecute and America will say "Just another Trump scandal."

If DeSantis is elected, they can't witch hunt him. America will say, "Here we go again...another witch hunt. Whatabout Hunter Biden, Hillary!, The Big Guy!" It loses its punch. Its like calling all Republicans "literally Hitler"...it just doesn't work anymore.

Gandhi and his movement had the benefit of going up against a non-evil Western power that respected human rights and acknowledged the problems of internal inconsistencies.

The Gandhi approach works against exactly one type of opponent: an honorable English-speaking power. In the immediate post-war period, that approach worked against both Britain and the United States government.

Noawadays, though? Nah. These are no longer governments with a modicum of honor, nor do they respect human rights.

As usual. SpaceX is *years* behind where it would have been without the FAA and NASA dicking them around. Throughout the Obama years, it was delay after delay as the norm. During the Trump administration, that stopped and SpaceX made huge progress. During Biden, it's back to status quo.

This isn't even about Musk (though that may be a factor now, post-Twitter), it's about NASA. These people do *not* want a private space industry. This is the domain of government, and they want it to stay there. These are delaying tactics to let NASA catch up and rule the roost.

Psychology Today:In evolutionary psychology, signaling theory explains behaviors that do not seem to serve an evolutionary advantage, and in particular behaviors that are meant to attract the attention of a targeted audience. . .
. . . those who perform drag full-time are faced with many personal, physical, and financial sacrifices as well. They also risk being discriminated against not only in public, but also within the gay community. Signaling theory would explain that engaging in “costly” behaviors demonstrates to the intended targets that they are not “faking” those behaviors, which has the benefit of the individual being validated and appreciated more for their efforts. Furthermore, the authors explain that in signaling theory, it is key that the signaling behaviors are extravagant or loud enough to garner attention in an otherwise crowded environment and to help reach the attention of potential allies. In other words, it is critical to stand out.

What I do know is that Netanyahu is fer it and our Thief in Chief is agin it. That settles the matter in my mind. Still, I do wonder what exactly is getting reformed here? Without wondering enough to read the 11,999,992 articles about the whole thing. Eight Israelis have NOT written a treatise on this topic.

Approximately. Thanks for the roundup JJS.

Well the judiciary in Israel was used to witch hunt Netanyahu a lot like what we see in the US with Trump. So that's probably it.

2. "As colleges go woke, dumb down curricula, and raise tuition fees, Pickpocket-in-Chief Joe Biden wants you to foot the bill."

Joe's theory of economics and his entire domestic economics "plan" is based on continually increasing FedGov spending. Increase it year after year by as much as he can get Congress to swallow. The objective is to buy votes, not improve the general economy for everyone. When the economy does go in the toilet, Joe's answer will be Spend More Money!

If Congress give him increased spending authority he's happy because he can try to buy more votes. If Congress balks, Joe is happy because he will campaign on the GOP House's refusal to spend a little more to give working families a little bit of breathing room in these tough times. Racism and Global Warming will somehow be included in his yelling about the cruel GOP refusal to spend a bit more money.

The US is deploying 2 aircraft carriers to the region. They could probably destroy what’s left of the remaking Soviet airforce.

Moldova needs help now and Poland is also firmly in Putin's sights. They need help too!!

War Criminal Putin will say NATO is aggressively preparing to invade Russia. State media robots will repeat it endlessly. One of his original excuses for his invasion was "NATO's eastward expansion."

so much for Single Payer health care. Probably get the retirement age raised again. And to keep the steady flow of volunteers to the armed forces, make sure income inequality remains high.

WTF? I played every Fallout game there is, it's not a pretty land. Russia is dying to pull the nuke trigger

White ppl not seasoning their food actually rly is based in racism & classism lol.

The reason white ppl don’t season food is bc historically, rich white ppl began to think seasoning was for brown ppl who had to season their food bc they couldn’t afford better tasting meat. They also associated unseasoned food w cleanliness & moral purity, calling it “clean” or “simple” eating. In medieval Europe the rich felt that once spices became affordable for everyone instead of just the wealthy, they no longer wanted them.

So basically white ppl don’t season their food bc their ancestors thought seasoning was for poor ppl & brown ppl. Lol

Another reason I largely don't care about the presidential race. The Senate is another fiefdom run by people not on our side, and the people in the states where the biggest problematic GOP senators come from (including my own SC) seem unwilling to actually try and fix that, all while the RNC and every other national Republican organization does everything it can to blunt actual conservative resurgences within the primaries.

But, still, Trump winning and putting DeSantis in charge of the DOJ would be a solid move, better than making him a worthless VP because all VPs are worthless.

Just a wildass guess here: The bland food whites eat is typically an unadorned piece of meat with one or more separate vegetables, right? Compared to the so-called "poor and brown ppl" food that is heavily spiced -- which is a mix of a lot of ingredients, which allows for inclusion (padding out) of less expensive ingredients, etc.
So . . . maybe it's more about class: a fine piece of meat should be tasted vs. mystery meat (all they could find/afford) being camouflaged with spices and mixed into a busy sauce.

* I know this based on an uncle who grew up during the Depression who ate one meal/day, a mystery stew that likely contained rat and other awful stuff, demanding only standalone meat and veggies as an adult. He wanted to know what he was eating.

249 Victor Davis Hanson: "The list of serial embarrassments at Stanford reads like the suicides of Greek tragedy, where divine nemesis follows hubris."

What Happened to Stanford?

----------

When I was there in the mid-80's, a small group of Marxists protested daily in the Admin Quad outside the University President's office chanting "Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Western Civ has got to go!"

Stanford had a requirement that a course in Western Civilization had to be taken in order to graduate (and they've since dropped that requirement, natch) -- but it was obvious that it was not only the course requirement they were out to destroy, but Western Civilization itself.

And now that the inmates have taken over the asylum, we see the fruits across the West -- and in particular the English-speaking countries -- of destroying the Judeo-Christian foundations, values, & ethics of Western Civilization. Ayn Rand prophesied & nailed it over 50 years ago with her book of collected essays entitled "The Return of the Primitive: The Anti-Industrial Revolution."

The reason white ppl don’t season food is bc historically, rich white ppl began to think seasoning was for brown ppl who had to season their food bc they couldn’t afford better tasting meat. They also associated unseasoned food w cleanliness & moral purity, calling it “clean” or “simple” eating. In medieval Europe the rich felt that once spices became affordable for everyone instead of just the wealthy, they no longer wanted them. ...

This holds up. This is exactly why European empires descended on the East and India in an effort to control the spice trade. Nobody wanted spices, spices were low-class shit for colored people, and so the European empires spent generations of blood and treasure to control the trade in spices to prevent their xenophobic cultures from collecting impurities from the non-white world.

You have the platform so instead of trolling anyone that says something positive about Trump with your Cult Of Trump BS, you can actually explain exactly wtf happened in Nov 2020? If you don’t think it was stolen and only a few shenanigans went on then explain it and how you think DeSantis(or anyone else for that matter) is going to win 24’. Step the F up or STFU. Your co blogger at least wrote a chapter in a book on how 2020 was stolen.

Worse was the complete unthinking use of the left's vocabulary of empowered, overcoming male dominated profession, systemic racism, being heard, underserved communities etc....

PS: Trump is way ahead of all Republicans in support from minorities. What happens if this is the message, "Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have a history of arresting people they don't like.

313 ... the Democrat calculus of preferring to face Trump rather than DeSantis for fear of him wiping the floor with Biden or whoever, since they regard Trump to be a pushover. Considering they have all but institutionalized election fraud in the key swing districts and states they stole in 2020, what does it matter who is running?

This rationale does not make sense to me at all. My theory remains that both the Left and the GOP establishment (GOPe) hate Trump and want him gone from politics. The GOPe seeks to do that by supporting his biggest rival, Ron DeSantis. The Left hates both Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis, but they know Donald Trump has massive support in the electorate, as evidenced by his 17.2% increase in votes from 2016 to 2020. That made it extremely difficult to rig and steal the 2020 election.

So the Left wants Ron DeSantis to win the Republican nomination to make their 2024 election steal much easier. With Ron DeSantis winning the nomination, the Republican electorate will be irreparably split. Ron DeSantis will not have anywhere near the 74.2 million votes that President Trump earned in 2020, making it that much easier to steal the election.

This is mostly true. I watched a documentary on spice, and it seemed to come from dry, arid deserts, but I wasn't clear on how hot it was. It actually isn't a plant at all, but an animal product from huge worms living under the sand.

Because it's so rare and expensive, it's the source of typical capitalism and colonial oppression, with constant war and income inequality. It also has some trippy psychedelic properties, but the documentary must be partially government funded, because it portrayed unrealistic consequences of drug use in a lame attempt to discourage it.

My take on Ron DeSantis is he has no shot at the Presidency no matter what he does. He is either a younger version of President Trump and ready to take the baton and lead the MAGA movement into the future, in which case he will be destroyed by the Left and GOPe as they destroyed President Trump...

... or he is a GOP establishment man and will never get the support of the Republican conservative base which is done supporting the GOPe.

So, the best bet for Ron DeSantis is to continue doing the great work he is doing in Florida as Governor and inspire other governors across the country to do the same.

There is no Republican candidate path to 270 electoral votes right now. The Arizona governor election steal took care of that. So best to focus on turning things around at the local level.

Anyone want that on their plate? we're going to have expectations of him that no one would be able to meet.

I think we're hollowed out - on the promises of a 5th generation set of lies all predicated on the concept that taking a little from everybody can do a lot of good for the few who need it. That government is charity, and it can solve social and economic problems.

We got on fine for 129 years before federal income taxes. We got on fine for 150+ years with no standing federal army. We got on fine for 150+ years without federally finded retirement. We got on for almost 100 years before the current "public" school system.

All of this got kicked off in earnest under Wilson, and it's been Progress- ivism ever since. But each generation told the next, this is how it is, and this is how it's always been, and slave away for grandpa, and bake the cake, and just following orders, and children have no gender.

Posted by: spypeach at March 20, 2023 08:09 AM

Agreed. As you mention, President Trump won the 2020 election. But it was rigged and stolen from him and the electorate. If the Deep State is allowed to get away with that -- and thus far they have -- with zero consequences, then nothing else matters. Because the country is finished when the election process is fraudulent and rigged.

The fact that many people want to move past the fact that a Presidential election was blatantly rigged and stolen and no one faced any consequences for it -- and nothing of consequence has been done to fix the issue -- tells me that those people are not serious about the future of this country.

341 I'd say this to Republicans that have grown Trump-weary, you may no longer wish to have him as your president, but you owe him your allegiance in this matter, regardless.

You cannot be nonplussed in this, whether your preference be Jeb Bush, Ron DeSantis or Alfred E. Newman.

The bigger issue for me is the rigged and stolen 2020 Presidential election. There is a Trump meme out there which states "They are not after me, they are after you. I am just in their way." The Deep State took care of that by rigging and stealing the 2020 election.

Since then, with President Trump out of the way, the Deep State has had free reign to come after each and every one of us. And they have, starting with the January 6th protesters.

Discarding Trump represents the electorate accepting the Deep State rigging and steal of the 2020 election and accepting that we no longer have legitimate elections in this country. If the electorate accepts that, the Deep State will know they will accept anything. And the Deep State will continue to take out every single future MAGA candidate as they did President Trump (and Kari Lake and others).

342 Swing and a miss. They don't fear Trump. They demonstrated quite well that they can largely contain him. I have nor reason to suspect that the thought process is any different for DeSantis.

This is vengeance. It's vengeance against Trump for having the audacity to think that a non-Deep-State-aligned outsider has any place in Washington and it's both vengeance against and a warning to the people who supported him. To the the people, the message is, "if you try this again, we'll hamstring the guy and gleefully run up the score until you damn rubes understand your place. You have no chance. We hate you and will destroy your symbols and hopes. If you try direct action, you'll end up in a gulag as a political prisoner like the Jan 6 crew."


100% agreed. The only sense in which the Deep State "fears" a President Trump run for re-election is they know it will make their job more difficult in rigging and stealing the election again. So I think they prefer Ron DeSantis, as his nomination would split the Republican electorate and make the steal much easier.

Vengeance is correct. Deep State is going full Ender's Game.

343 “ My biggest negatives are his age, his puerile name-calling against DeSantis, and most distressing, his making the theft of the 2020 election the central pillar of his campaign. ”

You forgot that Trump is easily influenced by insiders and sycophants who kiss his asterisk. And that Kushner snake, who undermined everything good Trump promised to do.

I don’t mind his name calling. That’s just Trump. I do mind that he is easily swayed. I can’t get over that enough to make him my primary choice. He’s still better than 99% of them, but for now let the arguments flower. I’m listening th Vivek, and watching DeSantis, and they would both be good in my opinion. It it’s early and we have a year until the first votes are cast. I might even change my mind about Trump meanwhile.

Everyone needs to take a chill pill and listen and discuss. Just because Trump likes to insult doesn’t mean we have to do it.

344 The 2020 steal may be a significant issue to many people, but it has no business in the 2024 campaign. Campaigns are all about the future, not the past.

Make it a part of the next administration to help states clean up their elections, sure, but in a campaign it is a loser issue.

Considering there is no future for this country if the election system is not fixed, addressing the 2020 steal -- and the 2022 steal of Arizona Governor election -- is *the* most important issue concerning this country's future.

345 Democrats have been stealing elections for as long as there have been Democrats. Harping on about it does no one any good.

Posted by: Huck Follywood at March 20, 2023 08:31 AM (12BxK)

And not saying or doing anything about the stolen elections means the Deep State will continue to rig and steal elections. In which case, voting is meaningless. In which case, everything is meaningless as we no longer have a functioning Republic.

346 I sometimes wonder about the people Prez Trump put his trust in. Cohen, being a perfect example. He always looked and acted like tissue paper.
